The Neturei Karta: not Jews in any real sense

As anybody who has ever witnessed an anti-Israel demonstration (such as the Al Quds march last Sunday) will know Neturei Karta are the 'Jews' who are the obligatory stars always placed at the front. They provide the ideal cover for the other demonstrators to spew as much antisemitic hatred as they wish.  Some people have argued that they cannot possibly be 'real' Jews because they not only call for the destruction of the State of Israel, but also praise terrorists who murder Jewish children. But what people are less aware of is that even their 'ultra-orthadox Judiasm' (which is the entire basis for the antisemites to revere them as 'true Jews') is actually something of a scam. Evidence of this is their attendance at demonstrations that take place on Shabbat. As I reported here I witnessed them a few years back at one such demo at Trafalgar Square. Moreover, they were carrying banners. When I had the opportunity at a subsequent demo, I asked their leader how this was consistent with their claim of Torah observance. He gave a truly remarkable response. He said they were allowed to carry banners in ‘that special place’ on Shabbat. I was not aware that Trafalgar Square had some special dispensation for breaching Shabbat.

Moreover, Richard Millett has reported on their attendance at an anti-Israel conference on a Saturday morning in London (another breach of Shabbat that no orthodox Jew would consider):
This induced a rant .. from Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of the Neturei Karta. Farcically, Weiss refused to use the microphone as it was Shabbat although he was freely producing business cards from his satchel.
I therefore do not believe these guys are real Jews in any sense. They are a bunch of publicity-seeking, Iranian funded, frauds.

Thank you for exposing them. Mr. Davidson. I'm going into Rosh Hodesh with a good laugh.

Shabbat is more important than drafting Hareidi men into the Army of Israel.
